Fans are not happy with his overall transformation.
Ryan Gosling will portray Ken in Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie,” and his makeover has already been shared on social media, giving fans a glimpse of what he’ll look like onscreen.
“#BARBIE July 21, 2023 Only in theaters,” Warner Bros. Picture posted the actor’s transformation photo on Twitter, the second image from the production after a photo of Margot Robbie dressed as “Barbie” herself in a pink convertible was released in April.
However, with his hair dyed platinum blonde and abs flaunted, it appears that not everyone is satisfied with the whole makeover, which has sparked a lot of discussion on social media, with people sharing their differing thoughts on his appearance.
“How did they make ryan gosling look unattractive for a barbie movie? how is this possible,” one person wondered on Twitter. “Kinda ironic how playing ken is the least attractive ryan gosling has ever looked😬,” said another person. Below are some more reactions to his makeover.
Robbie and Gosling will be joined by a larger supporting cast that includes Will Ferrell, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, America Ferrera, and more.
The plot of the film has not yet revealed as of the moment, but fans were unhappy when it was reported in April that the new film will not incorporate Aqua’s 1997 hit “Barbie Girl.”
Greta Gerwig, who has been nominated for an Academy Award, is directing the film, which she co-wrote with Noah Baumbach. “Barbie” is scheduled to be released in theaters on July 21, 2023.
